This cute little heart shaped Russian box is hand crafted from Siberian birch bark. The Birch Bark is cut, dyed or stained, sometimes the pattern is pressed into the bark and highlighted with stain, and then layered forming the pattern on the lid. Each box is unique and truly a work of art. This nice sized little box measures approximately 1.8 inches across by 1.5 inches by .75 of an inch high.

A NOTE FROM THE ARTISANS:
The main sphere of this craft is to develop beautiful high quality handcrafted items made of Siberian wood and birch bark. Each item is carefully crafted using secret technologies having been inherited from generations to generations over many centuries. Traditions and secrets of our ancestors as well as new technologies, have been developed by our artists, and skilled craftsmen of today. Each wonderful item is 100% handcrafted in the Russian Siberian cities of Tomsk and Novosibirsk.
All our crafts without exception are made from ecologically clean materials - Siberian Cedar and Birch Bark. They combine the best traditions of Russian culture and Russian Folklore. We make a variety of gifts and items such as small boxes for jewelry, powder-boxes, Siberian figures, hampers of different sizes, things for setting the table, etc. We specialize in fine ligature of multi-layered carving patterns. The light reflection and shade on the golden and velvety layers of birch bark give the ornament volume and depth and make them truly a unique work of art. It is amazing how exquisite and refined the artwork is even at first sight. We hope you enjoy this spectacular workmanship for many years to come.
Artisans from Tomsk, Novosibirsk and Neighboring Siberian regions
